My Blog Has Moved

Well folks, I've finally done it. I've switched to WordPress and my blog is now on my own domain. So say good-bye to Blogger and good-bye to the bling. But don't be sad. Life is full of change. Change is a good thing. It keeps us on our toes. It challanges us and makes us stronger. And as your next President... oops, I got a little speechy there, didn't I?

Anyway, check me out at:

I'll look for you there.

The Reports of My Blog's Death are Greatly Exaggerated

Ok. So I haven't been around for a while. I know I've been busy with work and my play and gaining back ten pounds. That stuff takes time, you know what I mean? Procrastination and apathy are an artform that needs to be slowly and carefully crafted. Very slowly...

Anyway, I was doing so well with my blog, faithfully posting around 20 posts per month. It was a lot of fun and I also enjoyed gaining a following and reading all the diffent blogs I'd stumble upon. So what went wrong? What happened?

Life happened. I got caught up in the crap and mess that sometimes life feeds us. It snuck upon me out of nowhere and the next thing I knew it was "Wham! Bam! Thank you M'am" and my blog was getting ignored. And I mean that figuratively because there's been no whamming or bamming in my life for quite some time. So I can't even blame my lack of blogging on that.

Oh yes, I did have my play. That ate up time all weekend and during the week I needed to study my lines. We've done shows for two weekends and now we have a little break. No show this weekend and then two more shows the following Saturday and Sunday. But rehearsals are over so I've got more time on my hands.

So what have I been doing? Well, not a whole lot. Not cleaning the house. (It's the worst it's looked since my depression) Not dating. Not rehearsing anymore. Certainly not blogging. That's a lot of "not doing something" going on here. In fact, way too much of that if you ask me.

One thing I have been doing is going to Merryfield's where Heather works. The food is cheap and good and the drinks are cheap and strong. I sit at the bar and drink beer and eat wings and watch hockey or basketball or racing on the tv with a bunch of middle-aged breeders and occaisionally their middle-aged wives/girlfriends. (Breeder is a gay term for a straight person, just in case any of you aren't up on gay lingo.)

Monday is $6.95 dinner night; Tuesday is $12.95 steak night; Wednesday is $8.95 pasta night; and Thursday is seafood night. Now where else can you get an 8 0z filet mignon dinner for $12.95 and Blue Moon drafts for $3.25? It's hard to resist that. I've gone with Linda and sat at the bar chowing down wings and listening to a live band. (The band was awesome) I've had dinner several times with Amy AND actually sat at the bar by myself several times.

But enough is enough. As cheap as it is, it still costs money and I can't afford to do that every night. Plus I'm gaining back my weight at an alarming rate and I am afraid that I am just going to give up and give in. So I've decided to stop running around and beg for forgiveness. I'm sorry my precious little blog for running around behind your back. I'm home and I'm here to stay.

Don't worry, we all occasionally get lives and find other things to do for a while. We all knew you would be back "home" eventually. The real world is just not that exciting... LOL Seriously though, welcome back. And damn! now I want wings.

Travis Erwin said...

I like blue moon but why ruin good beer with an orange slice.

Preston said...

Ken - Yea, I know but it's so easy to get caught up with everything else. I have a habit of starting something and then not following through. I'm NOT going to do that to this blog!

Travis - Blue Moon is damn tasty, with or without the orange slice. I actually like the extra citrussy zing the slice adds to the beer. Is citrussy a word?

WheresMyAngels said...

Great, I joined WW yesterday and am as hungry as hell, so I decide to do something to keep my mine off food and then you go and ruin it and all I want now is Hot wings in ranch! Thanks so much for the photo! lol

Crap I want a drink also!

Lidian said...

It's so great to see you back, Preston! :)

Lola said...

Welcome back Preston!

JD at I Do Things said...

Welcome back!

Those dinners out sound fun! I wish I had a friend who worked at such a place, so I could hang out at the bar and eat wings.

You probably really needed a break after being so busy. You said it best: "Life happened." And life is way more important than blogging.

Beth said...

My first visit here. And love your writing style!

And now I'm hungry . . . all that talk of food!

Hoping you post soon . . . I'm looking forward to more!

NJDecorator said...

I love reading your blog and gave you an award to prove it.

Susie said...

Sometimes left gets in the way doesn't it? Good luck getting back on the blogging wagon:-)

BTW, I love Blue Moon. That's a hard one to cut back on:-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such sweet comments. I hope to see you back there soon:-)

You're a hoot! (that straight girl from the south talk that means you're funny :P)
Welcome back!

Preston said...

Wheresmyangels - I am so sorry to bring up all that fattening bar food when you've just started WW. I'm with you girl. I've sworn it off. We can do it!

Mystery Man - I've been life's bitch more than anyone elses, and that's saying something. And let's not talk about red headed stepchildren cause I've got a thing for red heads...

Lidian and Lola - Thanks. It's good to be back.

JD - Those dinners are fun, just can't do them every night!

Beth - Thanks for stopping by. Glad you love my writing style. Hope you stop by more often!

NJDecorator - Thanks for stopping by and thanks for my wonderful award! Woo Hoo!

Susie - Life sure does get in the way sometimes. But I'm gonna be strong and save the Blue Moons for the weekend only! Oh, and I'll be back to your blog for sure.

Julie - Thanks for the lesson on Southern Breeder Lingo. :) You're a hoot too!
